Just when you think it is impossible to be gay and an active LDS, you find a person like Devin. His story is a fascinating journey in finding a path that works for him—on his own terms. He’s gay, he’s a future doctor, a primary teacher in his LDS ward and he’s busting the mold of what it looks like to be Latter-day gay.
In this Latter Gay Stories podcast episode, Devin shares his coming out story, what it was like to date women, therapy, serving an LDS mission in California, the 2015 policy of exclusion, working with church leaders, dating men, Grindr, and what his future looks like.
Devin describes himself as a unicorn–he’s unique and as you listen to his story, you’ll understand why. When so much attention is put on the rules of the Church and on what can and can’t be done, Devin has chosen to do what feels right, even if it defies the norms—and sometimes the rules.
